DSC Registers DaytonaStateOne.com

I see the college, or in fact, Higher One on their behalf, registered this new domain, presumably for students to access their debit card accounts. DaytonaStateOne.com is currently inactive. It says “Omnis Network: This web page is parked free.” That means their registrar is omnis.com.

It’s curious that they waited till August 5 to do this; a month and a half after the name change. Someone could have easily snatched up the domain name first. I wonder if they wanted DSCone.com, but picked the longer name because they were beaten to the punch? The old name was DBCCone.com.

DSC hasn’t been proactive about name management with this latest change. They have dbcc.biz, dbcc.us, dbcc.info, and every permutation of daytonacollege: .com, .net, .org, .us, .info, .biz. But they’ve done nothing with securing domains similar to daytonastate.edu: I have .org, .net, .us, .info, and .biz, and others have taken daytonastate.com and daytonastatecollege.com, all after the name change.
